Slurry bugs opinions

One thing to note when using any microbial slurry bugs is the presences of dairy chemicals, footbath solutions, wormers and antibiotics. They all kill microbes so the effects of a slurry treatment can vary massively depending on what's going in the slurry. There is at least one slurry conditioner that I know of that neutralises these and allows the microbes to work better, otherwise the microbes are all much of a muchness, bit like silage additives. Retention of N, less crust, less smell and easier to spread (umbilical especially) are all expected results of a successful treatment.
